Running win32 apps in linux?

hey all.
Im currently using suse 10.0 right now. ive been using it for quite a while now and never had the need till today to run a windows app. i was just wondering what the easyiest way to do this was? i know theres a few different ways to do it, but its only for 1 app so i dont need anything special. so if anyone can help me do this that would be great.

WINE: It emulates the Windows API. It can even run some games.

The easiest way would be with cedega, although it's not free, but it's really easy to use. Another option is WINE, which can be a pain to set up, but if you have the patience, go ahead, it's free.
You could also run VMware (not free) that actually runs windows inside linux, or the other way around.
Personally I'd go with cedega.
